Hey there guys
So, I am going to write a few posts about the different presents I received this year. As much as I was so grateful to receive these presents this year, I must say I enjoyed giving presents a lot more this year. It was just so good to make people happy and to show my friends and family how much they mean to me. I am showing you my presents because I am very pleased with them and just in case any of you want to purchase them.
As you can see by the title, this post will be about make-up. I received three new make-up products, two from my friend Janneke and one from my mum.
Firstly, my mum got me something I’ve been wanting for a long time – the Urban Decay Naked Palette 2. For anyone who doesn’t know, this is one of Urban Decay’s eyeshadow palettes, and the shades in this one are more “taupe-hued neutrals” with some old favourites. Using online tutorials, I have been using the shades Tease, Verve, Pistol and Blackout to create a silver smokey eye and have been getting lots of compliments. Also, my palette (purchased from Debenhams) came with samples of Urban Decay primer, which has been making my shadow last all day with no need to reapply. Will definitely be buying this primer to use more in the future.
My friend Janneke got me another eyeshadow palette, from Makeup-Revolution, called Run Boy Run. It contains 18 shades, 12 shimmer and 6 matte. The colours are really pigmented and the variety of colours can create a variety of looks. I am really excited to try this out more, I just can’t bear taking those first dabs and ruining the perfect surfaces!
She also got me a must have item, a Real Technique Beauty Blender. I have just switched back to liquid concealer so this will definitely come in useful. It comes with really easy to follow instructions about what products to use on what side of the blender, and helps blend in skin products like a dream. Would definitely recommend to every make-up addict!
So that’s it for the make-up presents! In my next post I will show you some lifestyle presents I received (to give you a hint, it involves a certain coffee shop that does amazing pumpkin spiced lattes!)
